• Supplies There are a few tools that will help make your first grade year run smoothly. Checking with your child throughout the year to make sure they have the supplies they need is always a great idea. We always have extra supplies in class, but having your own is more efficient. The things that need to be replenished most frequently are glue sticks/bottles, and dry erase markers. Checking on pencils, erasers and crayons is also helpful!
